Speaking to Large Crowds: Lessons Learned by Watching the Political Conventions

Business people can learn a lot about speaking in front of large crowds this week and next. The Democratic and Republican national conventions show the best…and the worst…techniques that speakers use.

As an executive speech coach, I will be analyzing the speeches from the perspective of WHAT BUSINESS PEOPLE CAN APPLY to their own presentations at work.

This is a non-political blog. There will be good and bad examples from each side of the political fence.

My purpose is to point out the mistakes that you won’t want to make when you get up to speak. I’ll also point out some of the techniques that are good to use in the business world.

Please feel free to comment.
